EBBERT, J. MARVIN
THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO DEVELOP A STANDARDIZED, MULTIPLE-CHOICE ACHIEVEMENT TEST ON THE OPERATION, CARE, AND MAINTENANCE OF SMALL GASOLINE ENGINES. OBJECTIVES AND A UNIT OUTLINE WERE DEVELOPED WITH THE COOPERATION OF 75 INDIANA VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS. A PANEL SUGGESTED MODIFICATIONS, AND THE REFINED OBJECTIVES AND OUTLINE WERE USED AS A BASIS FOR 175 TEST ITEMS. AFTER BEING ADMINISTERED IN 68 SCHOOLS, THE TEST WAS ITEM ANALYZED, AND 100 ITEMS WERE SELECTED FOR INCLUSION IN A FINAL FORM WHICH HAD NORMS BASED ON 565 SOPHOMORE AND JUNIOR AND 337 SENIOR VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE STUDENTS. THE TEST IS INTENDED FOR USE IN STUDIES IN FARM MECHANICS OF SUCH PROBLEMS AS BALANCE BETWEEN LABORATORY AND CLASS INSTRUCTION, INFLUENCE OF PROJECT-CENTERED INSTRUCTION, AND EFFECTIVENESS OF TEACHING METHODS AND MATERIALS IN THE SMALL ENGINE AREA.
